    im truly amazed at this man’s courage and bitachon in g-d in the face of unspeakable tragedy. May g-d repay him with the strength he needs to continue, and the immediate recovery of his wife and daughter.

    As per 3:00 in the video he says his wife’s name is Gila bat Francis, and daughter Tzipporah bat Gila…please correct the names and publicize!!

    in the article it says “his wife, Gila bas Francis and his daughter, Tzipora bas Gila.”

    and in the torah fund it says “Gila bas Tziporah and Tziporah bas Gila”….

    which one is it??

    re names

    Francis with -is at the end is a man’s name (with -es is a woman’s name). So if the spelling in the article is correct I would guess Francis was the father’s name. But I agree, someone should confirm with Mr. Sassoon.

    Gila’s mother’s name is Tziporah but she is called/known as Frances.

    Losing a whole family… that happened during the Holocaust.
    Hashem should give them strength as only He can….

    Use words carefully

    Not the ‘whole family’. There is still the wife and the daughter, they should live and be well.

    It’s so heartbreakingly beautiful to see a man who is experiencing the worst pain proclaim his belief and love for Hashem! Everyone is inspired….
    I am davening for the mother and the girl, but also for them to have peace, happiness and acceptance, when IYH they will get better! As well as the father. Because such tragedy is not normal!

    Gayle Sassoon is my hero , Hashem should ease her pain when she hears of the loss of her wonderful children she should be blessed with strength to marry her beautiful daughter to a Baal Torah and have many more children with her husband amen she’s a tzadeket
